Twine Recycling

agriculture recycling baling twine

We’re so excited to tell you about one of our newest recycling programs. Baling twine is now accepted at our Swink Sugar Factory location! In partnership with

“In 2012 the Fort Collins Conservation District started a baling twine recycling program in response to a landowner’s inquiry. There is no need to burn, bury, or throw the twine in a landfill when it is 100% recyclable.
A 2017 grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for the purchase of a pelletizer provides in-state processing of the twine. The added value provided by the processing helps the program to be sustainable as we organize collection as a fundraising activity for youth groups such as the National FFA Organization and 4‑H.”
